July 16, 2015 – A new addition to, home of the U.S. government’s open data, focuses on the connection between climate change and the nation’s energy infrastructure. Curated by an Oak Ridge National Laboratory-led team, the “Energy Infrastructure” theme contains federally created scientific and technical resources related to the potential effects of climate change on the U.S energy sector and other critical infrastructure. The team’s goal is to make climate data more accessible for policy analysts, researchers, decision makers, application developers and others to add value through the development of new tools and applications. “Data are increasingly becoming an indispensable resource for those working to enhance the nation’s resilience to climate variability and change,” said Benjamin Preston, deputy director of the Climate Change Science Institute at ORNL.
